Brutal nights for Quinnipiac, Yale

Two games. No goals.

The big stage can be tough to handle, but Quinnipiac and Yale combined to play two of their worst games of the season. Quinnipiac just didn't have anything against Brown, losing 4-0, and Yale struggled to create and defend against Union in a 5-0 loss.

Tough to get results.

Both coaches were extremely disappointed, so we'll spare you the quotes. Check out the stories at to hear what they had to say.

Instead, a quick look at the implications for the NCAA tournament.

Quinnipiac is in, it will be the No. 1 seed, it will play in Providence unless Brown beats Union Saturday. Then, it will be in Manchester.

Yale's situation is tougher to predict at this point. A win tomorrow against Quinnipiac guarantees a spot in the field of 16. A loss hurts, but doesn't eliminate them. Same with a tie. But instead of looking at a possible No. 1 seed, which Yale could have achieved with two wins this weekend, it's looking more and more like a No. 3 or 4 seed. We'll keep you updated.
